Meet Monifa: An Adoro One-Month-Old Pygmy Hippopotamus

Well looky here, baby! Meet Monifa – just one-month-old and already ready for the spotlight. It's shining brightly, too, as she's the first Pygmy Hippo born at Sydney's Taronga Zoo in the past 23 years . . . but don't worry, her cuteness makes up for lost time. I love baby animals (especially hippopotami) and, although this lass will eventually make a splash at over 350 pounds, she's about the size of my dog now.
